[ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers, this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] brand-new opening title graphics. did you guys like them? [ cheers and applause ] i'm glad. went out just this weekend in my hot air balloon to film them.
harrowing. when you're up in a hot air balloon like that filming it is harrowing. but that's -- didn't get the permits i needed to be up there. so nobody knows you're up there. but that's the kind of stuff i do for this show. [ laughter ] anyway, let's get to the news. a new poll found that 54% of americans say it's too early to be playing christmas music. i couldn't agree more. now let's talk about the 2016 presidential race! [ laughter ] move over, christmas. there's other stuff that's farther away. donald trump said in an interview today that he is highly unlikely -- it is highly unlikely that he would ever use nuclear weapons as president. meanwhile, ben carson said, "hey, what does this button do?" [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
at a donald trump rally this weekend, trump told reporters, "maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing." and he might have a point, because what the man was doing was attending a trump rally. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a new poll found that most americans trust hillary clinton to handle the threat of terrorism more than any of the leading republican candidates. mainly because she already has a very sophisticated terror alert system. [ laughter ] [ applause ] drug makers pfizer and allergan today announced a $160 billion merger. it's the largest pharmaceutical merger since the one that takes place everyday in keith richards' stomach. [ laughter ] "are you merging? stop merging."
that's right. pfizer is the maker of viagra and allergan, the maker of botox, are going to merge. and soon people are going to be able to get the youngest-looking erection. [ laughter ] [ applause ] just, no wrinkles. many are speculating that peyton manning's career may be likely over after manning was benched in favor of quarterback brock osweiler. not only that, but papa john was spotted hanging out with cam newton. [ laughter ] i just want to make sure you and i also have no on-screen chemistry. [ laughter ] miley cyrus last week performed in chicago while wearing a purple wig, moon boots, prosthetic breasts, and a large dildo. or as she calls it, casual friday. [ laughter ] a new study has found that specially-trained pigeons can
have up to an 85% accuracy rate of detecting breast cancer in humans, which means that 15% of the time, it's just a pigeon staring at your boobs. [ laughter ] hoo. [ laughter ] hoo! [ laughter ] pretty good pigeon, you guys. a 14-year-old from kentucky set a new record this weekend after solving a rubik's cube in just 4.9 seconds. though in kentucky, solving a rubik's cube just means smashing it with a baseball bat. [ applause ] today is national eat a cranberry day. so fashion models, go ahead and treat yourself. [ audience oohs ] [ laughter ] finally, jeb bush said last week that he wants refugees to take a test to prove they're christians before being admitted into the united states. so you might be wondering what kind of questions would be on the test?
[ laughter ] i wish he was too, but he's not. everything would have gone down differently, i think. if blade was there. up next, one of jesus' most well-known miracles was when he turned water into -- a, wine. b, snapple. c, more water. d, keystone light. [ laughter ] which would not be that impressive. [ applause ] turning water into keystone light is just adding a can. [ laughter ] all right, let's see. the last question, which of the following was not one of jesus' disciples? a, matthew. b, john. c, judas. d, allah d. above. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we've got a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] a jam-packed show. we have former vice presidential candidate and governor of alaska, sarah palin joins us this evening.
[ cheers and applause ] he is one of the stars of the netflix original series, "jessica jones," the wonderful david tennant drops by tonight. [ cheers and applause ] looking forward to talking to him. she is the newly crowned women's bantamweight champion ufc fighter, holly holm stops by "late night" tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and we have a very special performance from the deaf west theatre production of "spring awakening," which is currently on broadway. it is an incredibly unique production, as the cast is made up of both deaf and hearing actors, and the show is performed simultaneously in american sign language and spoken english. it's a beautiful, beautiful number. you won't want to miss it. so i'm very excited about that. [ cheers and applause ] like i said, jam-packed show. great show. before we get to all of that, and we will, i promise. here at the show, we believe that no matter how different two things are, they can still have common ground. and to prove it, it's time once
[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: you guys remember "venn diagrams?" groups and find out what they have in common. up first, on one side we have halloween decorations. on the other side, we have donald trump's poll numbers. and in the middle we have things that should have come down weeks ago. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] moving on, on one side we have black friday. on the other side we have therapy, and in the middle we have things that start right ter thanksgiving. a perfect time. for both. [ applause ] moving on, on one side we have yams. on the other side, we have sweet potatoes. and in the middle we have -- and they are the same hing. [ laughter ] stop telling me they're different. [ applause ] next, on one side we have the new england patriots. on the other side we have your girlfriend in an argument. i wonder what this could be. still unde.
[ cheers and applause ] now, here's the interesting thing. we're actually taping this show before the patriots-bills game tonight. so there's a chance that by the time i tell that joke, the patriots lost. in which case we would like to think that joke was actually responsible for the loss, in which case, you're welcome. [ laughter ] now, you might also ask, why not use the carolina panthers? they're also undefeated. they don't have a game tonight. that would have been the safe way out. well i'm sorry, but right here at "late night," we love to roll the dice. now, let's get back to the "venn diagrams." [ cheers ] on one side we have nerve damage. [ light laughter ] on the other side we have the 2016 new york firefighter calendar. in the middle we have things that cause a tingling sensation. [ cheers and applause ] moving on. on one side we have a jury. on the other side, we have a crowded men's room. let's see what's in the middle.
[ applause ] just had the most terrible dream. [ laughter ] moving on, on one side we have leftover turkey. on the other side we have movie villains. in the middle we have, foiled n! [ laughter ] [ applause ] dear diary. "venn diagrams" started hot, and now i don't know what happened. [ laughter ] going to get you back with this one, you guys. right here, this is a fool-proof venn. betting my career on it. [ laughter ] a lot of pressure. hello, nbc. if this joke doesn't work, i would like to resign. [ laughter ] and finally, on one side we have thongs.
[ laughter ] on the other side we have donald trump's hair. [ laughter ] in the middle we have barely covers the butthole. [ cheers and applause ] we're back. that's "venn diagrams." we'll be right back with sarah palin. [ cheers and applause ] i'm going to ask you one more time, where's the million dollars? mr. dogg. my money is in the bank, baby. i'm not a baby, baby. oh, you wanted a million dollars? what are you doing here? why don't we just go to old navy, they're giving away a million dollars on thanksgiving. a million dollars? someone in line when stores open on thanksgiving will win a million dollars and everything's 50% off on thursday and friday! why would they do that? let's go to old navy!

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back, everybody. our first guest served as the governor of alaska and was the 2008 republican vice presidential nominee. her new book, "sweet freedom: a devotional," is in bookstores now. please welcome to the show governor sarah palin. [ cheers and applause ] hi there, how are you? >> i'm doing great. how are you? >> seth: i hadn't -- well, i guess i saw you this past february, we were at the snl 40th together. but we first met of course in this building when you came and did a cameo on snl during the 2008 election. which was a crazy night. >> was that a cameo? i thought it was a big darn deal. >> seth: it was a huge deal. i didn't mean to -- look. i will tell you this -- josh brolin and i have talked about this. 'cause josh brolin hosted that
show and he said nobody even remembers i was there, once you showed up. >> i don't hear anything -- >> seth: you and i got to sit next to each other while amy poehler did a rap. >> no, that's tina fey. >> seth: no, that's -- >> oh, that's me. >> seth: that's you, yeah. [ laughter ] when you came on snl, who was more nervous, you or the mccain campaign? >> oh, the mccain campaign, i'm sure. "don't go rogue, sarah, please. don't talk." >> seth: did he talk to you beforehand, because of course he had hosted the show years before. >> yeah, 'cause he had a great relationship with a bunch of you guys. and he told me that i was going to have a blast. and i did! that was the best night of the campaign! >> seth: we had a lot of fun. i had a lot of fun that night. you were incredibly gracious and it was great having you there. what was -- the first time you saw tina do you on the show, the season premier that year, what was your first reaction to it? >> i'm like -- i thought it was me. >> seth: yeah? [ laughter ] >> yeah, but i'm like, wait! and so often, today even seeing clips of that, if i'm walking by the tv, and my kids -- my little son too.
mom?" [ laughter ] it's freakish. >> seth: it's freakish. it was nice that -- i thought for all of us the snl 40th was a great evening. you got to be there, as well. we were talking backstage. you couldn't -- it was overwhelming for anyone, whether somebody who had been there once or someone who'd been there for so many years. was there anybody especially exciting that you got to talk to that night? >> yes. i think the most meaningful encounter that night was the comedian, louis c.k. >> seth: louis c.k. yeah. >> not c.k. louis but louis c.k. >> seth: louis c.k. yeah. he'd answer to both, i'm sure, yeah. >> he tracked me down while i was there. and he happened to apologize that night for some drunk tweet that he had fired off. i think on an airplane one night years ago. i hadn't even know that he had said something crude. but i'm just like, "well, get in line. you know, who hasn't?" [ laughter ] and he apologized. and he said, never in a million years had he been one to want to apologize to someone. and i thought, what -- what -- this is a special guy. you know, either that or what's
wrong with him? [ laughter ] why in the world -- because of all the celebrities who, yeah, have said some things that, you know, weren't always of the nicest things in the world. he's the only one who has ever apologized like that. >> seth: well, that's lovely. >> it is lovely. >> seth: i think that was one of the energies of that night -- >> exactly. >> seth: -- was everybody was sort of in it together. >> yeah. >> seth: one of the other funny things, you stood up that night as part of a bit where people were asking questions, and you said "how much would lorne michaels pay to have me run for president again?" and then your follow-up joke was "what if donald trump was my vice president?" this was february. none of us could have expected he would now be a front runner. he was a joke in february, a punch line. now, you're a fan of trump's, you're a fan of a lot of the candidates. why do you think he has sort of taken the world by storm here? >> because he's not a politician, thank the lord. you know, people are just really tired of the status quo. >> seth: now, but you were a politician. now, that's the thing. >> thanks a lot. >> seth: you were, but -- you had experience going into it. >> yes. >> seth: not only were you mayor, you were governor. so -- but yet you don't think experience is important. >> i think it's very important.
but at this time, with our economy, with national security issues that have kind of -- it's been a culmination of a lot of problems with the professional politicians that have gotten us to where we are. and people are saying, you know, that status quo has got to go. let's get some diversity in there. there. and that's what you see with these candidates who are rising the in polls. >> seth: don't worry, i'm not complaining about it. i've enjoyed every second of it. [ laughter ] >> yeah, i bet you have. so has lorne michaels. >> seth: exactly. no, we're very happy. you have supported a lot of the candidates who are running now, are candidates you supported back when they were sort of running in primaries, people like rubio, carly fiorina. ted cruz, rand paul. i feel like what happened in recent election cycles is during the republican party primaries, it will sort of lean to the right. but then eventually they go to sort of a more centrist candidate. do you think they're going to maybe switch it up this time? do you think this nomination process will have a candidate that maybe the right wing of the republican party is more enthusiastic for? >> i think this is a whole
'nother ball game, this go-round. i really think that times are just -- it's like the world is spinning so quickly, we can't count on the conventional political system or process that people have either enjoyed or not enjoyed. but we certainly witnessed over the past decades in our history. this is a different ball game. >> seth: all right. >> yeah. >> seth: now, i want to ask you a question, because you were a governor, and a lot of governors have come out speaking about syrian refugees and the idea of more than half of the governors have said they don't want the syrian refugees coming into their states. obviously, this is off the paris attacks. and do you think there's -- do you think it might look like this is a decision being made out of fear? and do you think -- isn't there something to be said for having the moral courage to welcome in people who are in danger and in fear and need a safe place to go? >> well, their message is not we don't want syrian refugees. their message is, what is the vetting process? how do we know that these are the innocents who are coming
and they're not the bad guys infiltrating under the guise of refugee. and they want a vetting process, because we don't have that from the top. we don't have that at the federal level. >> seth: we do, though. in order for any refugees to come in, it is, like, an 18 to 24-month process for them to get through. it starts at the u.n. and then comes through, you know, multiple government agencies here in the states. is it maybe that just at the core there is a -- i think there is just a lack of trust across the board for the federal government? do you think that's what these governors are really saying? that ultimately anything the federal government tells them, they don't trust? >> well, i don't trust what the federal government is telling us. but even you should not trust that what the federal government is telling you about the 18 to 24-month vetting process is as legit as perhaps they're trying to make the public believe. because truly, there is no way to filter out those who would want to do this country harm with the process that we see in place today. and that's why it's not just republican governors, but democrats too who are saying, "wait a minute. somebody has got to be the last
line of defense here." so the states are taking on that authority. >> seth: but there is never going to be -- right, there is never going to be any process where you can reach absolute safety. right? i mean -- at some point -- >> right. if we were to strive to reach absolute safety, we would not have freedoms. and you know, if people have the choice here -- i mean, we can have both. but we're all about freedom. i mean, that's the foundation of our country. so we're not going to give up freedom for that. >> seth: and i will say, though, and i think we can both agree that freedom is, you know, one of this country's great resources. and i just think that there's -- you know, we talk about it a lot and i really do think that's why these people are so desperate to come here. i don't think they're coming -- you know, i think that this idea they're coming here to infiltrate -- i think that is fear-based. and i do think they want to come here and enjoy the same things you and i are lucky enough to have. [ applause ] >> i do think most people want to get into america to enjoy what it is we have been blessed with. i do, i do. it's just unfortunate that we know, as we saw in paris, there are some people who want to get to a country to do harm. but no, i agree with you.
that for the most part, people want to be here to enjoy that exceptionalism that we're all blessed to enjoy. >> seth: thank you so much for being on the show. it's always a delight to see you. >> thank you. >> seth: governor sarah palin, everyone. her latest book "sweet freedom: a devotional" is available now. we'll be back with more "late night."

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back to "late night," everybody! please give it up for "the 8g band"! [ cheers and applause ] also, sitting in on drums this week, from the grammy-nominated rock band, "yeah yeah yeahs," brian chase is here. welcome, brian. [ cheers and applause ] you can catch brian playing with "blarvuster" at "the stone" in new york city on december 9th and 11th. thank you for joining us, brian. it's so great to have you here. >> great to be here. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: our next guest is a verytalented actor who played the tenth doctor in the popular bbc series, "doctor who." you can now see him as the mind-controlling villain in the critically-acclaimed new netflix show, "jessica jones." take a look.
>> tell you what. let's take a walk on the wild side. let's have everybody go all-in. let her ride. now it's getting interesting! best estimate, where's the pot right now? >> just over $1 million. >> yeah, that should do it. let's make it really crazy. everybody fold. oh, i guess that makes me the winner. a meet with a juice and a 7. >> seth: please welcome to the show, david tennant. [ cheers and applause ] how are you? >> very good. >> seth: i'm so happy to have you here. >> i'm very happy to be here. >> seth: now, this is very exciting for me, because i read the comics that this show is based on. i think it's a wonderful
adaptation. >> yeah, great. thank you. >> seth: you can see from the clip we showed, obviously, that your super power is you're terrible at poker. [ light laughter ] >> exactly, yeah. >> seth: you have mind control. you are a villain with mind control. having played the part, is mind control a super power you would personally want to have? >> initially, you can, i think, yes. who wouldn't want the world to acquiesce around you? >> seth: yeah. >> but i think if you want to pick it, it's as much as a curse as it is a blessing. >> seth: how so? >> well, how do you -- how do you get through life? how do you know if people are doing things because they want to? how do you have a conversation with anyone? >> seth: right. >> you know, how do you get on the same level with anyone? how do you build a moral framework? >> seth: gotcha. well, i guess that's the thing with villains, though, it doesn't really matter much to them, right? [ laughter ] >> well, but he doesn't think he's a villain. >> seth: no, that's true. and i will say -- i want to talk about this, because you bring a lot of charm and humor to a character that does very terrible things. was that sort of a conscious choice? because it makes it so much
interesting, than i think, any other villain that sort of is pure evil from very the start. >> no villain is -- well, i don't know, maybe they are. but no, i don't imagine anyone who is perceived as a villain believes themselves to be a villain. >> seth: really, you don't think any villain -- i guess, maybe. >> no, donald trump doesn't think he's a villain. [ laughter ] >> seth: no, yeah. that's true. that's true. [ cheers and applause ] actually -- you know what, i sometimes hate -- i sometimes feel like they give villains in comic books -- there will be, like, people who believe -- the villain believes global warming is real, but then what he's going to do is destroy all the humans. >> right. >> seth: that's his point. and i'm like, "well don't give him a reasonable starting point," because that just gives people who don't believe in global warming, like, "see what will eventually happen is they'll kill all the humans." like, no, that's not going to happen. so you're saying that they don't -- you don't believe -- >> well, i think he's got this thing where from childhood, anything he says becomes fact. so he has no way of knowing what's appropriate and what isn't.
>> and that's how he -- you know, clearly he's done some pretty reprehensible things. >> seth: sure. >> but he doesn't understand that. you know, he's locked in the curse of his own ability. >> seth: speaking of something that can be a blessing or curse, one thing that's different from the comic, in the comic, killgrave is purple. >> yes, he is. >> seth: now, were you psyched going to be the case in the show, or were you a little bummed out? [ laughter ] >> i kind of thought it might be fun. >> seth: yeah. >> but i think by week two -- >> seth: right. >> enough. enough. it's 4:00 a.m., and i'm in the makeup trailer already and people are attacking with spray guns. >> seth: yeah, so this is better. >> and all my bed linen is being laundered for the fifth time this week. i think it would get old quite quickly. yeah. >> seth: i do think you dodged a bullet. this is lees like, i feel like one of the marvel movies we've become accustomed to and a little bit more like a film noir. >> it is, yeah. >> seth: sort of detective show. >> yeah. >> seth: was that a fun balance to play, like both being sort of from the world of superheroes? and doing something --i felt sort of feels more familiar in, like, the '70s. >> it gives it a different
flavor, doesn't it? it is, you're right. it's like a film noir crime thriller with some people who happen to be able to do some extraordinary stuff in it. but there's nobody in spandex. there's no capes. >> seth: right. >> it's again, a real-world super-hero story. >> seth: i think that's good. because i think spandex sometimes can make you a little less scary. >> and it chafes. [ laughter ] >> seth: it chafes, yeah. i think the worst possible outcome would be painted purple, then they put you in spandex. >> yes! >> seth: that's a nightmare. >> yes. oh, the rashes! the rashes! >> seth: that would be your super -- that's your weakness. you rash easily. >> exactly. >> seth: now, first of all, happy -- it's "doctor who day" -- >> yes. >> seth: which i will admit, i did not know. [ cheers and applause ] i was just informed of it. >> i think some people here knew that already. >> seth: they knew that! now, i'm very happy to hear this. because you were the tenth doctor. >> yeah. >> seth: and you were a fan of "doctor who." >> oh, i grew up absolutely obsessed with it. >> seth: i think that's great, because, you know, you'll have, you know, certainly when people are doing stuff that's adapted from the world of sci-fi or comic books, a lot of times,
i'll have guests who are entering that world. comics?" and they'll say, "no, but since i got the part, i've read them and it's great." >> yes, "fly by night." >> seth: "fly by night," yes! and this is great though. out you were the real deal. >> you bet. >> seth: you were somebody who should have been playing >> yeah, it's quite complicated. [ laughter ] >> seth: it is very much like a this doesn't sound weird at all. you're making it way better. >> no, it makes perfect sense. but yes, her dad is also the -- he was -- he was a doctor that i watched when i was growing up. >> seth: oh, wow. that's really exciting. >> it is quite weird. >> seth: it is really weird. but it's good.
like, you know, let your freak flag fly. [ laughter ] >> in our strange, little bubble. >> seth: so you -- this was a fascinating -- it must have been fascinating for you. so, "broadchurch," which is a and then adapted here. >> yeah. >> seth: "grace point." character, but you played it first -- >> very nuanced in all sorts of ways. >> seth: of course, of course. unless you have seen one, you but -- >> yeah. >> seth: what was -- because i was surprised to hear what you thought the biggest difference between doing a show in england and doing a show in the states was. >> it's craft service. >> seth: craft service. the food on the set. >> yeah, which, for anyone who is not in the industry, the whole thing -- there's a whole department dedicated to snacks. >> seth: yeah. >> because man, this country knows about snacks. [ laughter ] >> seth: we do. >> i salute you. i absolutely -- [ cheers and applause ] well done. >> seth: we do. we're the kings. >> in the uk, on a film set, a round of -- you know, mid
morning, someone comes around with a tin of biscuits, cookies as you call them. a tin of cookies. and if you're lucky, and they come to you before they go around the lighting boys, you might get one. >> seth: one cookie. >> and that's it. that's your snack for the morning. in the u.s., there's like -- there's a department. there's a craft service department. and they will set up a table of stuff and there are sandwiches, and there's doughnuts and there's all sorts of cookies and chips and coke and coffee. >> seth: and you walk around -- >> it's amazing. >> seth: mozzarella sticks. >> yeah, and wherever you go. on "jessica jones," we filmed at the top of skyscrapers. we filmed down alleys that stank of urine. you know, every spot -- and before you get there, food is there with our craft service truck, ready to go. because if you can't have coffee and a doughnut at any point during the day, then i think the unions get called. >> seth: absolutely, yeah. [ laughter ] >> you guys have got your priorities straight. >> seth: no, absolutely. well, this country is basically based on coffee and doughnut whenever you want it. >> i love being here.
>> seth: thank you so much. i'm such a big fan of yours. and congrats on the show. it's fantastic. >> thank you so much.

>> mixed martial artist ronda, turned mixed martial artist. [ screams ] >> beautiful! beautiful! she's hurt! she's hurt! she's going to finish! [ cheers and applause ] holly holm is the new ufc bantamweight champion of the world! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: please welcome to the show, holly holm! [ cheers and applause ] the belt, there it is! >> they sent me out with it. >> seth: they sent you out with it. it's pretty fantastic. now, you i've heard you've had some trouble flying with the belt. security. >> yeah, i go through, and then they tell me i have to check my bag because it's pure metal and they can't see through it. and you can literally see it say "ufc" on there. one time -- >> seth: through the x-ray, you can see ufc? >> yeah.
one time was legit, and i think the second time was, like, "i want to look at it." >> seth: oh, gotcha. [ laughter ] >> which is cool, you know? >> seth: yeah, that's fine. when you're working in the tsa and the ufc belt comes through, you want to take a look. >> let's spice up the job for the day. >> seth: so i owe you an apology for this reason. you're from albuquerque, my wife's family is from the area, and my father-in-law has met you a couple times. >> yes. >> seth: and he told me, he's like, "you've got to have holly holm on your show. she's going to fight ronda rousey." and just because my father-in-law knows so little about sports, i just dismissed you. >> that's okay. [ laughter ] >> seth: he was like, "she's going to win. and i was like, "okay, tom. all right." and then sure enough, you won. and i feel like not only do i owe you an apology, i owe him an apology. >> we can keep it between us. >> seth: we can keep it between us. >> you don't owe anybody an apology. >> seth: so obviously, this was such a huge upset. i mean, it must have been, to some degree though, less of an upset for you. you don't go into a fight like that thinking you have no chance of winning. >> right. >> seth: you know, right? >> there's a lot on it. i mean, you don't -- there's moments where you're like, "man, this is going to be
a tough one," you know? >> seth: yeah, like in moments leading up -- in the weeks leading up to it? >> training. you have some bad days training and you're thinking, "that ain't >> seth: do you watch a lot of film? because i would imagine fighting -- because i've seen film of ronda rousey, and if i out of the country. >> okay. [ laughter ] good thing there's not much of it. 15 seconds, 34 seconds. >> seth: that's the thing. in order to watch all her fights before yours, i gave myself seven minutes. >> there you go. [ laughter ] >> seth: now you -- you come from a boxing background. you were a boxer, as well. so talk through the fight a little bit for us, especially for those of us who don't understand mixed martial arts as well, and how your boxing sort of played into your strategy. >> so i think the biggest thing about boxing is i just saw so many different styles and i had to adjust to how different fights would be. i've had to fight with a broken nose or a swollen eye or swollen lip, and have to fight through it. and so i feel like just all these battles and all these different girls just made it something that i learned to just adjust.
>> seth: right. >> so i think that that helped a lot. even going into this fight, i was just thinking, you know, "i've faced really aggressive opponents before. i have faced really talented opponents before. i've been the underdog before." and so those -- i think those things were what helped me the most. >> seth: that's fantastic. now what has -- post win, what are the things that you've been able to do that weren't sort of opportunities you had before the win? >> most of all, i got to go to the "seth meyers show." >> seth: thank you very much. [ cheers and applause ] >> i got to go meet jamie foxx and go to a clippers game. >> seth: you went to a clippers game? >> with my husband and a couple friends and we got to meet derek jeter and floyd mayweather. and, i mean, then we went to the fights, and i got to meet oscar de la hoya. >> seth: that's great. >> and hopkins. i mean, it just -- >> seth: there were a lot of people tweeting after the fight. that must have been nice. i think one of my personal favorites was amy schumer. a lot of people say you and amy schumer look alike. and she tweeted, "thank you everyone for congratulating me." [ laughter ] >> and i said, "bravo.
you looked stunning." >> seth: "you used to look fantastic." now, the actual moment -- because i do want to show -- we saw this video. and the actual moment of the kicking here, was that something that as that happened, that was -- did you see that as an opening and, like, "hey, this fight is going to end right here?" >> as soon as i saw her kind of standing back up, it was kind of a slow-motion moment right there. like, don't kick her while her hands are still on the canvas, because that would be an illegal blow. let's not ruin this. >> seth: right. >> we're close. we're so close. don't ruin it. and then it was there, so i just let it go. >> seth: oh, that's fantastic. i mean, for you. [ laughter ] it's weird to say, like, "that's so great." [ applause ] you -- there was a bit of -- you know, i don't -- you can tell me how real it is or how much obviously there is a certain level of showmanship to these fights. there was some animosity between you guys beforehand. after the fight when ronda went down, you went over -- there seemed to be a lot of good sportsmanship, which was nice to
watch. when you went over, sort of what did you say to her after the fight? >> here's the thing. weigh-ins was kind of fun. we kind of had a little -- you know. >> seth: is that fun for you? does it make it more exciting? >> i mean, it's intense. >> seth: right. >> but then you leave and you're like, "yeah! it's time! you know? >> seth: i guess that's better than leaving, being like, "what [ laughter ] >> yeah, exactly. >> seth: "i cannot wait to see them the next time." >> the energy. so -- but the reason -- why is that fight so big? why is this win so big for me? because she was that good. she was that dominant. so after the fight, you know, it's just like, "hey -- a lot of us wouldn't have the opportunities without you, and i appreciate you. and you've been a very dominant champion for a reason." and i mean that. >> seth: of course. i think that's everyone -- [ cheers and applause ] i'm gonna give her that. is there a chance for a rematch? is that something people can expect. >> oh, i welcome it. i -- i've have been on the other end of losing a belt before, getting knocked out and having to come back. i did avenge my loss. and i know that she'll be
wanting to do the same. so i'll have to train twice at you know, she'll be coming back. she's -- she's a competitive person. and we all know that. so, she'll be coming back hard. >> seth: excellent. well, best of luck and congratulations. >> seth: it's really exciting. [ cheers and applause ] holly holm, everybody. we'll be right back with a "spring awakening."
